In 2004 at Air Force tech school a girl had this blanket and was offering to sell it. She didnt want to but she couldn’t take it with her. I bought it for $5. 10 years later I still have it and it was the best $5 I have ever spent. I got a great big cozy blanket and a memory. Where ever you are Airman thanks! It went to a good home.

One positive thing in my life is my family. They are never far and always waiting. They still get together for Holidays and Sunday breakfasts. All of those family traditions and times being quickly forgotten by today’s culture are still alive there. People are friendly and willing to help a stranger. I take it for granted but my family is the most positive thing in my life.
"The army stationed me down South when I was younger, and I couldn’t even use the same bathroom as white people. But things have changed so much. The younger generation isn’t nearly as racist. I’ve been sitting here for fifty years. So much has changed. This neighborhood used to be all black. A white person couldn’t even walk down this street. All the races kept to themselves. Now you’ve got Indians talking to Pakistanis, blacks talking to whites, everybody is here and learning from each other’s cultures. I’ve been sitting here for 50 years. Things are getting better."
This one brought tears to my eyes. :)
"We’d been having a sort of tacit conversation about it for a couple years. Then one day, his sister, who already knew, was teasing him about having a crush on a boy at school. And I heard him say: ‘Well, maybe it’s true!’ So I said: ‘Son, we’ve never really talked about this. Are you gay?’ And even though he was 6’4”, he came over to me, curled up in my lap and just sobbed and sobbed. It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life, actually.”
